Audi A6 vs BMW 5 - which is the better used buy?

I need to buy a large used car. I've narrowed my choices to a 2017 Audi A6 or a 2016 BMW 530d. Similar miles and price. Which car would you choose?

I'd choose the BMW because it's better to drive, more comfortable, faster and still pretty good on fuel. Choose the Audi if you need more interior space or just like its design, but the BMW is the superior car in my opinion.
